  • Cover the dough with a cling film Or damp cloth and set aside for 30-40 mins.
  • Divide the dough in to 14 ~ 15 equal portions. Using rolling pin, flatten the balls into oval/round shape about 2.5 to 3 inches in diameter and make sure it is not too thin else it won't puff / rise well. You got to keep slightly thicker than chapatis. Do the same with rest of the dough balls.
